WHERE IS YOUR OFFICE?

I am a Virtual Real Estate Agent. I handle everything via phone, text and email. I am able to keep my fees low because I don't have the expenses of a fancy office or commuting all over Utah.


WHAT HOURS DO YOU WORK?

My hours vary based upon the services you select. Contact me to discuss further.


WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE DIY REALTORS?

-Sellers typically pay 6% to sell their home (3% to Listing Agent and 3% to the Buyers Agent). You only pay me $500 to get started and then .5% at closing. You will save thousands of dollars and still receive great service that would cost you more elsewhere. (Please note you do your own showings and open houses)

-Other flat fee companies have too many listings to give yours the attention needed. Also they are known for not answering their phones or returning calls and emails.


SO I ONLY PAY $500 TO SELL MY HOUSE?

No. I charge $500 upfront to list your home on the MLS and provide Agent Representation. If you don't sell then you pay me nothing more. If you do sell then you pay only .5% more to me at closing.

WHAT IF I AM ALREADY UNDER CONTRACT - CAN I USE YOUR SERVICES?

Yes - contact me to discuss further


DO I OWE YOU ANYTHING MORE THAN $500 IF I FIND MY OWN BUYER AND HANDLE EVERYTHING MYSELF?

You can find your own buyer and handle everything else yourself if you want to but I have to be the agent of record if I put you on the MLS and I'm here to help. I am paid .5% of the purchase price at closing regardless of if you found the buyer so let me help you.

DO I HAVE TO OFFER 3% TO THE BUYERS AGENT?

No. The MLS requires you to offer a Buyers Agent Commission but you determine the amount of that. Agents are usually fine with anything above 2% so 2.5% should not be a problem. If an agent requests more than 2.5% you can decide if you want to accept or decline. We just need .5% in addition to whatever you pay the Buyers Agent. If you choose to offer the Buyers Agent 2.5% then you would pay 3% total for both agents at closing (.5% to me and 2.5% to the Buyer Agent)
